Giving up the long ball hurts Cards in 4-3 loss to Nationals

ST. LOUIS (AP) Tyler Lyons did well enough as a fill-in starter for the St. Louis Cardinals, Brandon Moss hit another mammoth home run and the offense erased a seventh-inning deficit for the third straight game.

They just ended up a couple of hits shy.

"Today we just couldn't pull it off," manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday night after a 4-3 loss to the Washington Nationals. "Once again, we showed a lot of life, we showed a lot of fight, getting us right there at the doorstep again."
